of the person you damaged. i mean, cruz is getting it both ways. screw up the economy, kill public confidence, then say there's a lack of confidence and the economy's not growing as it could so i'm going to bring economic growth. >> chris, i think there's some validity to that based on the numbers. that same study you were talking about estimated that job growth was diminished by at least 60,000 jobs a month over the last few months. and that's going to continue on into next year. it's not like it's stopped because government is back in operation. it will be a continuing ripple effect over the next year. and as you point out, this whole scenario could start up again in january and february further zapping consumer confidence. that's 2/3 of the economy is consumer spending. it's one reason why there's a growing angry gulf between tea party republicans such as ted cruz and the business community which has been shut out to some extent that wants its way back in here before things get out of hand. >> you know, i was skeptical, david -- i'll get back to you on this howard. there's cruz out there w

we know that nothing has happened differently with our economy. >> can private charities kick in? i give money to food banks, people give money to food banks. and you should. but no one should be fooled into thinking this can solve the problem. every food bank, soup kitchen, food pantry in america distributes about $5,000 worth of food. so this goes into effect as if all of these charities didn't exist for a year. >> the cuts that happen on friday, automatically that no one is talking about, they're not like a political issue. those are equal to the sum total of privately charity funded food assistance in the entire nation. >> as media matters pointed out, this is the first network show to even discuss 48 million people losing food. and the house cuts on top of this would be eight times what charities distribute in a year. >> then congressman, i want to go to you on that. the republicans proposed a $39 billion cuts to programs a year. what is interesting, it seems like food stamps there was something there was a political consensus around, until recently. i wanted to show you an ima
